OLS 16 BlossomPosted: May 1, 2015
It is my turn to host the One Layer Simplicity challenge this month. Just in case you’ve never visited the OLS challenge or played along, the challenge is hosted by a design team of five, the challenges go live on the first of the month, continue until the 24th, then we create a details post to highlight some details on a few cards that caught our eye. As the name suggests the cards have to be ‘one layer’ and we like to keep them ‘simple’. This month I have a key word to challenge you: BLOSSOM. It just so happens that the founder of our challenge, Susan Raihala is also know as Lateblossom so you can choose to be inspired by blossom, the word or Lateblossom, the card maker.
I inked up my ‘delicate blossoms’ stamp with distress ink and distress stain, added the branch details with a black marker, spritzed the stamp then pressed it onto watercolour paper. When it was dry I added the tiny stamen details with a marker and stamped the sentiment in black. I hope you get inspired to join us over at One Layer Simplicity this month
